    The pup in my avatar has a white spot but now at ten months it is hard to find.

    She's cute. The white on the face will probably diminish. Mine was also a darker yellow. If she had been light you wouldn't have seen anything. That's how the mismarks get passed down-because they aren't seen much until you get a darker coat color to contrast.

    I agree that a lot of white visible on a puppy will shrink or disappear as they get older, that is a lot of white on that particular puppy however, if you intend to breed. If you aren't breeding and don't mind it, doesn't matter.

    Nope, I'm not going to breed her.

    I think if I choose her I will call her Speck

    LOL, one of my yellow females had a light streak down the middle of her back as a puppy so I called her Streak. It disappeared very quickly and I often have to explain why I named her Streak. I agree with the others, the facial white especially will likely blend in or disappear as an adult.

    The white you see on my pup below her mouth is gone. Just white spot on her chest is still there but no very noticible. Her grandfather had the same mark she is the only pup of ten that had it that is why I chose her. Her grandfather has passed the grand five or more times if I am not mistaken.

    The white will shrink over time. We had this with Tess and on rare occasions like shed, the little bit of white which remains on her chest is visible. The white soul patch on her chin is a mark of distinction which has been passed onto a couple of her pups. Those pups are fire breathers just like Mom.

    Oh my, that puppy is adorable! How could you resist? Her chin makes her look like she's smiling. I agree with the others, take her home with you!

    Soo very cute! Sounds like if you don't take her someone from here just might. Better hurry and enjoy puppyhood.
